  1. How long can you leave these meals in the fridge or do you freeze some of them? As a rule I wouldn’t leave any cooked food in the fridge longer than two days. Five or six days (if you prepare on sunday) seems too long?

    1. That depends on what is in them. I would look up the specific main for the dish. Rice should only be kept 1-2 days.

  2. Some great recipe ideas here and easy to adapt to suit any specific dietary requirements.

    Many thanks for posting
